Before signing the bill adding sanctions on Russia, Trump privately tried to kill the bill, calling Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn) and telling him that the bill was "bad policy" and "unconstitutional".

Politico (8-23-2017): Trump expressed frustration over a bipartisan bill sanctioning Russia and tried to convince Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) that it wasn't good policy, according to three people familiar with the call. Trump argued that the legislation was unconstitutional and said it would damage his presidency. Corker was unrelenting, these people said, and told Trump the bill was going to pass both houses with bipartisan support.

It looks like once Trump realized the Senators were not intimidated, he pretended to like the bill by signing it.
Slick.

When did The Donald say he liked the ridiculous, unconstitutional, witch hunt act? Indeed, he reluctantly signed it in hopes some of the douchebag Swamp senators would do the right thing on Obamacare repeal or whatever. The treasonous McCain however flaked...

You are so fucking clueless that I don't even know where to start in order to explain that very salient fact to you.

You are more to be pitied than scolded.

He only signed to save himself the embarrassment of them making it law anyway after he vetoed it. Don't kid yourself he can't think that far ahead to try to make a deal!

Feel free to point where the congress is charged to conduct foreign relations in the Constitution.

You didn't make an argument.

So Trump signed an unconstitutional bill? You're odd.

TRump has called multiple senators and congressmen and asked them " to protect him from the Russian Investigations"
That's how illogical and scared shitless he is..
Funny his merry band of followers say the Russian Investigation is over but Trump continues to be obsessed with it..
He knows how guilty he is. An innocent man would pay it no mind..

Indeed. The pussygrabber is ADHD... and many times forgets what he's talking about in a 3 minute span.

You're saying he was willing to sign an unconstitutional bill as a bribe to end healthcare. Yep, sounds like something that scam artist might try to pull. Blew up in his face though, didn't it? Typical for an unethical president.
